It's NOT Swine Flue - YIPPEE!!!

Sorry I haven't been as active in the bolgosphere this past week, I have been really sick. I woke up Monday with a horrible migraine, that just wouldn't go away. I finally was feeling able to get out of bed that night, but by then my nose was all congested and my ears were plugged. By Tuesday I had a sore throat, and my ears started to hurt. Wednesday began the cough and aches all over, on top of my usual pains .... and Thursday morning the fever and well, then rest is kind-of itchy!! I called the doctor's office, and, of course they couldn't get me in until Friday afternoon. So, with The Hubs and the dog completely avoiding me, I suffered alone on the couch or in bed, trying to read - through scratchy eyes - as many blogs and emails as I could. {I do have to give credit where credit is due ~~ The Hubs, who is still recuperating from his gall bladder surgery, went to the store to get me OTC flu medicine and came back with that, and throat soothing drops and Tiramisu ice cream. I really LOVE that guy - even if he won't come near me right now.}
So, I finally, got to the doctor today, after geting up and trying (with a fever of 100) to shower, shave my legs (boy did I look bad - no wonder The Hubs wouldn't come near me), and get dressed. Turns out I ONLY have a head cold and a bad case of bronchitis; not Swine Flu , and I'm really not dying - which I swear I thought I was. So with my three prescriptions in hand: inhaler, antibiotic, and codeine laced cough syrup (finally some sleep for both of us), off we go to the pharmacy.
Hopefully I will catch up to you all in the next couple of days when I am feeling better, sorry to have neglected you all, I have missed you.... Hope your families are well and if your children have started school this week, I hope it has gone smoothly for them, as well as you mommies.
Until next time...... Lorie
